Not the first Weir Good Lovin', he did one in the pre-retirment run.

Subject: First Weir Good Lovin'?*
I'm not sure. No other earlier (commonly circulating) recordings give an earlier version of Weir's led Good Lovin'. Nice little jam afterwards and before also shows their versatility with the arrangement whereas the later 77' on and versions would become more tightly wound and defined. If it isn't the very first, its damn near it. Surely don't think Weir's version tops the original Pig-led rendition super-jams, but just thought it was worth noting.

Oh yeah, this show, for 76' a year of "songs" and "less jams" is quite a treat. Comes A Time alone should draw your eye, but then the whole segue from the second set is well worth it. Maybe not their most energetic playing, but a unique effort from a generally standard re-vamp year. Other standout shows from 76': June 9th, 14th, 29, July 18th, New Years, these are up with this overlooked gem!

In these years the dead built up thier song list. They changed from the 60's and very early 70's. jerry took the forfront a bit more and thier songs became much more artful compared to the earlier craziness, which was great in it's own. Kieth and Donna really left a mark. Even though Donna was criticized and Kieth fell asleep sometimes due to his medication , I loved them both. When he steps up and plays piano I wanna rock n roll along. Jerry steps back and then steps up and plays his sweet lead. In 35 years nobody has brought me up and down so smoothly. If you get it , you get it. If not, forget it. Nothing has affected me like the dead in my whole life. Let it rock.

Listen to the piano part in the jam right before "Comes a Time."

Tell me that isn't "Take Five."

Subject: Nothing Stands Out?????
Wow, not that I find anything terribly wrong with the other reviews...except for one thing. The segment Playin' in the Band> Drums> The Wheel> Good Lovin'> Jam> Comes a Time> Dancin in the Street> Not Fade Away (with China Cat tease)> Dancin in the Street > Around & Around is outstanding. And not in the normal way of GD excellence. This segment stands as one of the top 50 jam segments the band ever played. In fact, it was voted in as one of the top 31 Jam segments of all time recently by a group that goes by the GD Clubhouse that does different best of projects. The segment is nothing short of spectacular.

Sound 8/10
Show 9.5/10
Overall 9/10

I was in my senior year of high school in suburban Detroit and wish I wasn't so busy playing soccer because this would have been a great show to attend. Has a little fall '77 bounce to it...slow, clear and Garcia clarity.

Rock on to the Dead 1976-2006
DSO on and on and on.....

Subject: '76's "sound"
Not that they weren't able to JAM as well as in ANY other year, but the "sound" of shows from '76 didn't grab me the way some other years did. Having said that, this is still worth your time to listen to. Nothing stood out---to me anyway---but remember that "average" for The GD was still pretty damn good...
It's ALL in how the music makes YOU FEEL!!!
